Mathematics - Associate of Science

The Associate of Science in Mathematics Program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in mathematics or a related field. Mathematicians use numbers to solve problems ranging from building bridges to interpreting crime statistics. A math degree can pave the way for a career in nearly any field. The reasoning and data skills math students develop are useful in business, research, teaching and many other areas. The program requirements allow students to choose courses that fit their career goals. Most graduates pursue advanced studies, but this degree can qualify job seekers for some entry-level positions such as accounting clerk or health records technician. Students who intend to transfer should contact their faculty advisor and the school they will be attending to make sure they are taking the right courses.
